A Blacktown man has called it quits early from work this afternoon after receiving a phone call with the news he’s now $200,000 richer.  

The Sydney resident won the guaranteed 1st Prize of $200,000 in Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw 1426, drawn Thursday 15 August 2019. 

We broke the unexpected news to the man today while he was still on the job. 

“Thank you very much,” he laughed.

“I’m in shock. 

“I’m just sitting here thinking ‘wow’. 

“I’m still at work. There was no way I was expecting your phone call or this news! But I’m now going to be heading home early! 

“I cannot believe it!” 

When asked how he’d enjoy his unexpected windfall, the man revealed it would go a long way towards realising some long-held dreams. 

“We’d love to do some renovations around the house, put in a new kitchen and garden,” he said. 

“Maybe we will also go on a holiday. I know my wife has been dreaming of visiting Disneyland. 

“She’s going to lose the plot when I tell her about this!” 

The happy man, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased his winning entry online at thelott.com – Australia’s official lotteries.
